Smirnov - Privetearihi

California, LA is where Smirnov hails from, bringing us a bluesy classic rock similar in places to The Black Crowes, early Alice Cooper, Voodoo Johnson maybe even Terrorvision and Tenacious D only with a very quirky sense of humour in the lyrics. Tracks like 'Angel', 'Saddest Boy in The World', 'Take It To Marz' and 'Rebelz' really showcase this guys' talent.

Privetearihi is a thoroughly enjoyable album with some great songs on it; I'd love to see this guy live if and when he ever gets over to this side of the pond.

As I said, fans of any of the bands that I mentioned above should find something to love on this album, highly recommended!

Rating 9/10
